Registration Policy Rules

CANCELLATION POLICY: Requests for cancellations or refunds must be submitted by email to on or before Aug 4. All requests are subject to a $50 administrative fee. Refunds will be processed in the name of the original payer within 60 days after the initial request is received. All conference registrations are non-transferable. Refunds are not given after Aug. 4, and ENA will not reimburse you if you do not attend.

Non-receipt of a confirmation notice before the event is not justification for seeking a refund.

Emergency Nursing 2023 registrants who are approved a deferral request will be allowed to defer for only one year. The refund and cancellation policy will not be waived.

NON-REFUNDABLE POLICY: ENA membership dues, donations to the ENA Foundation, additional registration add-on items including t-shirt orders, special events and educational sessions with a fee are non-refundable at any time.
